PRII Partners with European Movement Ireland to Deliver Specialised Certificate in European Public Affairs


PRII is pleased to announce its partnership with the European Movement Ireland in the delivery of a specialised Certificate in European Public Affairs commencing on April 8th.

With the Brexit negotiations about to commence, Irish companies and NGOs of all sizes – now more than ever - will need to closely monitor and appropriately engage with Irish and European policymakers to ensure they are fully aware of all the potential implications. However, this can be challenging, particularly when staff are not engaged in such matters regularly or have prior experience in the area.

PRII and EMI have partnered to develop this course which will be delivered by former European Affairs Minister and TD, Lucinda Creighton. The course is designed to equip attendees with a full understanding of the EU decision making process, enabling you to engage with and navigate the EU bureaucracy effectively from an Irish perspective.

This Certificate Course is delivered over four non-consecutive Saturdays in April and May, commencing on Saturday, April 8. There is a member’s rate of €1,560 for EMI and PRII members, and €1,890 for non-members. Award of the Certificate is on completion of a 3,000 word project applying the learnings of the course to the participants work. Full details are available here.

Founded in 1954, European Movement (EM) Ireland is the longest-established Irish NGO dedicated to European affairs.  An independent, not-for-profit, membership organisation, EM Ireland works to develop the connection between Ireland and Europe through engagement, accountability and debate.  It facilitates links between all sectors of Irish society and the EU Institutions and other European organisations through advocacy campaigns, education programmes, training courses, information briefings and networking events.  For more information, visit
